Trichocereus werdermannianus is one of the lesser known, but not entirely obscure species in its genus. It is sometimes used synonymously with trichocereus terscheckii. But werdermannianus is a separate, though similar, species. Werdernmannianus is native to the Tupiza region of Bolivia. Though not far off, terscheckii is known to grow in northern Argentina. According to expert opinion, werdermannianus may be more accurately synonymous with Trichocereus taquimbalensis var. wilkeae. Trichocereus werdernmannianus is also a relative of the more popular columnar cacti, namely San Pedro Cactus (trichocereus pachanoi) and Peruvian Torch (trichocereus peruvianus). Werdermannianus may be used as a grafting stock, but it does not grow as quick as its more popular cousins. The stems of these plants can be as thick as two feet wide and 15 feet in height. The blooms are white.
